Have friend who wants to take his T1 from his busdiness CISCO Router to 6 PC'S.  Don't think your average switch/hub will do.

What recommendations does anyone have to share this T1?  Also wants to be able to do VPN and Voice over.

Thanks

As PeteLong said, the switch/hub shouldn`t matter, the router is the important part.
A switch is preferable to a hub, But the VPN and VOIP is dependant on the correct configuration of the router.
